  • ‘A plea for equal justice’

    As a conservative columnist, I have always tried to focus on constitutionally based concepts of personal responsibility and accountability supported by the belief that our country is founded on the principle of equality of opportunity.
    My numerous columns always attempt to support these views with appropriate facts and historical connections thereby providing a somewhat logical and rational basis for the opinions. Given the very nature of Op/Ed columns, these positions welcome opposing views.

  • Colorado's Olympic talent reigns supreme

    Growing up in Steamboat Springs in the 1960s and ‘70s, the Winter Olympics were a big deal. We’d earned the name, “Ski Town USA” as more winter Olympians had (and still have) been produced in Steamboat than anywhere else in the United States. We all had everyday interactions with Olympic athletes, and I had friends who would become Olympians.

  • Winners and losers
  • Living life to the fullest in Colorado

    Saturday marked a milestone, of sort, for yours truly. The day — Feb. 3 — made it 10 years since I moved to Colorado. Pulling up to my in-laws’ house with my wife and youngest children awaiting me, my oldest son and the family dog as we hopped out of the U-Haul, completing our 1,700-mile, two-day trip just in time to watch — imagine this — the New England Patriots playing in a Super Bowl.

  • Transforming the bully pulpit

    For a full year now, I’ve been taking notes. Almost every day. Notes about the Trump presidency.
    It wasn’t easy because before one story could play itself, out another replaced it. My notes became encyclopedically long. There’s a popular theory going around: Trump keeps up this pace so we can’t get preoccupied with one bit of beastly behavior or any single atrocious act. It fast becomes yesterday’s news.

  • The American great divide
  • It’s the new normal

    Whether as kids we lived in a close-knit community like Evergreen or a big city elsewhere, the Cold War scared us. That was our normal. Now, a quarter-century after that war wound down, we live with a new war. New threats. A new normal. The Halloween slaughter by an Islamic terrorist on a Manhattan bike path made us conscious of it yet again. No matter where we live.

  • Get ready for a wild ride, Colorado

    Just 52 weeks from now, we’ll decide who’ll succeed John Hickenlooper as Colorado’s governor. All indications are we’re in for a wild ride.
       At the end of October, 26 active candidates were listed as gubernatorial candidates on the Secretary of State’s website. And shortly after a poll suggested former Congressman Tom Tancredo would run best among Republican candidates, he jumped into the race as well.
